Do you have a cable box or satellite box? If you do, try hooking up your TV sound through the box. Look for audio out in the back of box (white/red RCA Jacks). Hook RCA cable from cable box to surround amp. Even if the audio out jacks are being used already, you can use Y connectors to hook up the surround amp to the box.
Hope this works for you!

Rca model rtd3266 won't produce aux audio through the tv even though we have hooked up the red and white cables. It only playes the surround sound when you watch the dvd.


I believe you have misunderstood something. The audio output from your TV is stereo. Your RCA system produces surround output from your TVs stereo input.

DVD PLAYER to TV HOOKUP


57b6c82.jpg

Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

LG blue ray won't play sound from RCA sound bar. HDMI cable is hooked into HDMi slot on TV


the details you provided were very vague, however from my experience when a device is connected to another device via and audio capable hdmi cable, that device renders it audio output to the device its connected to and normally turn off all other audio outputs beside optical- I would assume there is an option in the blue ray player to turn off hdmi audio, which will in turn activate other audio outputs- you may also look for audio out port on your tv, it is ideal to connect the sound bar directly to the tv set audio out ports. To sum this up,
if you plan to use your player via hdmi cable you need to turn off hdmi audio output on the blue ray player and the plug an audio cable from your blue-ray player to your sound bar
you may also as i said connect your sound bar directly to your tv, the issue is most tv sets now a days do not have an audio out port, if you do then everything you play thru your tv will have audio via sound bar
there are several way to go here but unless your sound bar has hdmi av switching capabilities (im sure not) this is one of the most simple--Good Luck.

Is there anyway to play my normal television sound through my surround sound insted of my television?


Hi.What kind of audio output connections does your TV have?
If it has mini jack output, you should use this cable:12_15_2011_7_49_41_pm.jpg
If the output is RCA you should use this one:

I have rca home theater system rtd215 plays dvds fine but no sound when im watching tv programs i have no cable box just the jacks on my tv [52 projection screen phillips] and i tried hooking them into the...


This reson you are not hearing any "TV AUDIO" through your RCA surround system would be due to your tv sound output not being connected to an audio input into your surround system. You can hear DVDs,CDs and radio possibly mp3 if connected, as these are built in to the amplifier which the speakers connect to.
If the tv has a Line out (via phono plugs) and NOT via headphone out, connect it to an audio input on the RCA surround system. If the RCA has no other available inputs, well....there ain't a lot you can do but watch CSI with the sound from the TV and then Star Wars (for example) through the TV and Surround system.
Best Of Luck

I cannot get the surround sound to come on tv mode on my friends RCA DLP. Any suggestions? is this a t.v. issue? DVDs and Ipod connections are fine.


The tv must have a stand alone audio output that you would connect the audio composite cables to going to the aux or audio input of the surround sound system. You may need to switch the surround sound system to aux mode or av input 1 or 2 and etc. If you are connecting a cable box or satellite tv box to this television instead of connecting the audio composite cables between it and the tv, connec them between it and the stereo surround sound system.

I've bought a panasonic sound surround dvd player and want to link it to a sky+ box and tv so that sky will play in sound surround. Can you advise on the wiring configuration please?


look at the back of your tv does it have a audio out RCA jack?
it should do plug in the surround sound into that using RCA cables

if your tv does not have audio out RCA jack then you can

get a adapter which makes scart connectors turn into RCA jacks get that off ebay

plug the yellow line to the tv and connect the red and white to suround sound
but with this there are a few problems sound will only come out when surround sound is turned on and skys sound will never play out the tv
if you switch to a PS3 or something it will not play suround sound

yuo best option is the RCA plugs in the back of the tv

because you have not written the model number of the tv or the suround sound i cant help any further

Hi,

Three (3) possible ways:
1. use the audio out of the TV (if available) which would normally be red/white RCA and connect to any of the free INputs of your DVD surround sound system;
2. remove the cable INput of your TV and feed it to a tuner such as those in a VCR or any other device (some DVDs have TV tuners also). The VCR's Video OUTput would go to your TV while the Audio OUTput would go to any of the free INputs of your DVD surround sound system;
3. if your cable uses a box/decoder and has the yellow, red & white RCA, its a matter of splitting the red/white signal to feed both your TV and DVD surround sound system or simply remove them from the TV and feed them to the DVD surround sound system.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How to get sound through speakers with tv and not just dvds


Just wire your TV audio out to one of the receivers (DVD player) audio in and select AUX when you want the TV sound to play through the surround sound. You also might want to turn the volume down or off on your TV to get the full surround sound feeling, but that's your call.

Surround sound


Make sure the RCA cable is going from an audio OUT on TV or DirecTV box to a red/white (non-digital) audio IN on surround sound or home theater system.
